Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My name is Christine Chiu and I’m a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. My vision is to support and encourage individuals and families toward emotional health and restoration. Prior to pursuing therapy, I spent 5 years working in Human Resources and completed my Certificate in HR Management through UC Berkeley Extension, expanding my career counseling and coaching skills. Since 2007 I have been working at Christian Psychotherapy Services, specializing in counseling adults and adolescents, covering various concerns including: Abuse & Trauma, Anxiety, Career Counseling, Depression, Emotional/Spiritual Health, Identity Formation & Life Transitions. I enjoy traveling overseas to volunteer my time in teaching basic Counseling Courses to young adult students, as well as presenting workshops on Emotional Health and Wellness. I value the importance of training and equipping aspiring counselors in becoming effective and compassionate healers, and advocates of emotional health. I also highly value a culturally-sensitive approach to counseling and will intentionally consider one's background, faith, and experiences when working with individuals and families. For a list of my Workshops and Presentations, please visit: Workshops. If you have any questions or would like a free phone consultation, please feel free to email or call me. I look forward to speaking with you. Christine Chiu, M.A., MFT christinechiu@sfchristiancounseling.com (650) 201-0294

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
